Our church celebrates freedom of belief and welcomes individuals and families of all backgounds and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate a particular creed. We come together because of our shared commitment to values and to ways of living, not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more about the long history and tradition of Unitarian Universalism. The Strafford Universalist Society is the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in the nation. Though the society was dormant for several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in 1833 in South Strafford. We hope you will join us.

December Activities

Sunday, December 3rd, 10am. “Everyday Peace” Led by Rev. Telos Whitfield. 

In this season of giving, we look for ways that we can spread peace in our daily lives through small and larger acts. We remember and celebrate traditions and stories of Advent and Hanukkah in this season of lights.

Sunday, December 17th, 6pm. “Honoring the Light – Our Winter Solstice Celebration!” 

We will gather once again at Lee Funston’s home at 192 Justin Morrill Hwy in Strafford for songs, readings, ritual and silence as we light a bonfire, share stories and honor this ancient tradition. If you can, bring a dish to share for our potluck supper and feel free to invite family and friends to join us!

Sharing Holiday Cheer!

We are continuing our tradition of baking holiday cakes and offering them to folks who might need a bit of holiday sweetness. We’ll be cooking at Denise Thomson’s house in mid-December, so give us a call if you’d like to join us!
